The GOP’s “stolen 1960 election” myth debunked

Republicans have been lying about elections for a very long time. From Raw Story (here): “Grab the nearest Republican and ask them, ‘How did John Kennedy win the election in 1960?’ Most will answer, ‘Mayor Daley stole the election in Chicago.’ In the modern era, that [...]

Educators, say “no!” to nutty parents

Vaccinating kids doesn’t put a microchip in their bodies that allows the government to control their brains. It just doesn’t. That’s a fact. Believing otherwise doesn’t make it true. I don’t see any point in trying to educate those parents, explain the truth to them, o[...]

It’s easy to debate a conservative

I’ll show you, with a specific example. I’m going to pick apart this piece by James Antle III, a conservative pundit (see his profile here). Before diving into it, though, I’ll remark that we don’t hear much political debate in the U.S. anymore, just a lot of partisan noise. [...]

Why the Fox reporter shouldn’t have tried to diagnose Biden on the air

Because she made an ass of herself, that’s why. Just a few weeks ago, Fox News medical correspondent Marc Siegel, M.D., wrote this (here): “Americans have come to falsely believe that we can evaluate our leaders based on TV snippets. Some doctors too easily fall into this trap, too, but [...]

The voting machine wars

Voting machines have been breached by Trump loyalists in at least three states. In all these cases, they gained physical access to the machines and/or obtained confidential software and data.

The radical right targets LGBQT youth suicide prevention

Conservatives, with Republican Party help, are waging all-out warfare against LGBQT people, including kids. They were already trying to exclude LGBQT kids from school sports, tell them what bathrooms they can use, ban LGBQT books from libraries, and censor teachers. Now, they’re falsely accusi[...]

What the heck was he thinking?

Marine Sgt. Travis Glosser insisted to investigators he “never had any intent to harm anyone.” He never considered “selling, giving, or even showing anyone” the 13 lbs. C4 plastic explosive he stole. That’s enough to blow up three “antifa” buses (video below), [...]

Pelosi’s $25 million Florida mansion
